PhD Studentship in Cognitive Vision, University of Leeds

http://www.engineering.leeds.ac.uk/comp/pg/PGRComputing.shtml

School of Computing, University of Leeds
PhD Studentship in Cognitive Vision

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to work in collaboration with an (EPSRC funded) research project exploring the application of machine learning in activity recognition from video. The PhD topic will be to explore the use of qualitative spatial representations within the overall context of the project, drawing on ideas from computer vision, machine learning, knowledge representation and automated reasoning. The successful candidate will thus gain in-depth expertise spanning all four areas - a conjunction that we believe has excellent potential for the future development of cognitive vision systems.

The successful candidate will be jointly based in our computer vision and knowledge representation research groups (www.comp.leeds.ac.uk/research), working with Profs Tony Cohn and David Hogg. The studentship is open to citizens of any country and will pay a stipend of approximately 12,300 p.a. plus fees. Non-EU applicants will be required to make-up the difference between UK/EU and non-EU fee levels (see the website below).

To apply, please submit an application through our PhD admissions process - details can be found at http://www.engineering.leeds.ac.uk/comp/pg/PGRComputing.shtml  Within your application, please indicate that you are applying for the PhD studentship with Profs Cohn/Hogg on Project LAVID.
Informal enquiries should be directed to:
Prof Tony Cohn +44 (0)113-3435482 email a.g.cohn@leeds.ac.uk or
Prof David Hogg, +44-(0)113-3435765, email d.c.hogg@leeds.ac.uk
Closing Date: 17th January 2007.
